. if there is anybody that comes across as the big loser of this election season, it's not mitt romney or paul ryan it has got to be karl rove. he prides himself as being the smartest man in american politics. he did get george bushel elected as governor and george bush elected as president but then he bragged about -- he was going to create the permanent republican majority and he sold that crap in the white house, and people believed him. did it work? hum, i don't think so. >> yeah how did that work? >> i don't think john mccain got elected, did he? >> no, i don't remember him winning. >> and i don't remember this guy -- mitt romney getting elected either. so then karl rove comes up with this american cross roads idea. of course the supreme court gave him a big give in citizens united, so they could raise this millions and millions and millions of dollars, and support all right-wing candidates and throw them into senate races, house races and the presidential race. and then karl rove goes on and some of the stuff he said -- he was so wrong. it's unbelievable. the "washington post
at it voucher program, which mitt romney and paul ryan supported and the american people rejected. so don't fall for this republican line of baloney that they have suddenly seen -- gotten religion when it comes to new revenue. the only solution is an balanced report which includes spending cuts and new revenue and not just closing loopholes. it's not just closing loopholes. it has got to include raising taxes on the wealthiest 1%. let's talk about it 866-55-press. 866-557-7377. i hope i'm not alone among the media who will say these republicans are just trying to con the americans one more time and stick to the old mitt romney plan which the american people rejected on november 6th. don't fall for it. 866-55-press. let's talk about it. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ [ male announcer ] it's that time of year again. time for citi price rewind. because your daughter really wants that pink castle thing. and you really don't want to pay more than you have to. only citi price rewind automatically searches for the lowest price. and if it fi

[ cheers and applause ] >> bill: a great moment there. the president saying last night listen i have not maybe been the perfect president. he always says that, but i was listening to what you wanted me to do and i tried to do my best. >> obama: whether i earned our vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you and you've made me a better president. >> bill: and just jump in here to
of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as a result of economic growth. in other words, we won't legislate changes in taxes. we'll hope that revenues
paul ryan's role in this campaign and how that role was shifted or even erased halfway through. >> yeah. i thought that was -- that was symbolic of the state of the big debate and what both campaigns knew americans to believe about it. republicans were very, very excited to have a large philosophical debate and the appointment of paul ryan as vice presidential candidate when it was kind of a moment when they really seemed to think that they were going to get it. >> john: i thought so. >> paul ryan spent a week where he would talk about this debate. going to have the debate. when does the debate start? let's do it. it was good-bye paul ryan. >> john: why was that, jonathan? they didn't get the bounce in the polls because of his appointment or because of the stench comments? >> i think it was the fact that they never wanted to have the debate. >> john: really. >> they knew the debate was bad for them. i think they needed paul ryan on board. romney liked paul ryan but the campaign -- the only campaign that gave
-along with that. there are some republicans you are. you are never going to get michelle bachmann paul ryan god bless america. for all of the other ones moderate republicans and those are like, wait a second. i am going to be in a tough primary fight. in the mid-term election, going to be in the mid-term fight against a democratic candidate. they are going to have to come to the middle. i think there is also, new republicans republicans, you know, in the united states congress like the bob corker's of this world, pat tumis whom say let's get something done because if we don't, it will be unpopular and we will get nothing done. >> the question is whether john boehner is going to be able to get that vote of the tea party members of the house. so far, what i find disgusting, if the republicans could have made this deal six months ago because they were so cocky. they figured they were going to knock obama out, it was going to be a different world. right? so they went home and said we will wait for the election. and let the people decide. we will be in charge afte
! >> bill: that's the message. >> i'm actually getting news in my ear that paul ryan is claiming he will complete election day in just shy of three hours. [ laughter ] >> bill: paul who? we haven't heard much about paul ryan. >> you know, bill, you've been in this game a long time. when you are not a popular candidate on the ticket, they tend to put you in like you're only doing radio and television interviews in the states with no actual media exposure. they're not even doing that with him anymore. he would be lucky if he ended up on a hamm radio in riverside california. >> bill: i think he's still trick or treating with his daughter. >> he dressed as eddie munster. it is not a halloween costume. >> bill: judd legum will be joining us from think progress. we'll be talking to senator tom harkin from the key swing state of iowa. president obama out there again day before yesterday i think. if anybody could deliver iowa, it is barack obama or tom harkin. >> they can't do it without your vote. >> bill: exactly. so i
around the elections was none other than paul ryan who at one time, had a little more prominence as the vice presidential nominee of the republican party. now, he's just that old guy from wisconsin who is just one of 435 members of congress. yesterday he talked to abc. he said losing this election is not exactly what we expected to happen. >> going into boston that day we felt like we had a pretty darn good chance of winning. so as you can imagine, it was a bit of a shock when we didn't win. just the way these things go. >> cry me a river. >> bill: had a pretty darn good chance of winning. we didn't do our homework. we didn't know all of those people would come out and vote for obama. yeah because they didn't have any intelligence or ground organization. they ran a crappy, lousy campaign. but, of course, paul ryan ever in denial says don't read too much into obama's victory. >> i don't think so because they -- the house republicans. whether people intended or not we've got divided government. >> bill: he says o
-- he was out hunting he went hunting paul ryan -- he tried to bag barack obama. that didn't work. he tried to bag some quail or deer. i don't know what he was hunting. moose? i don't know. >> he was doing his p90x routine. >> bill: he came back yesterday and said you know what? we ran a hell of a campaign. >> big ideas and big issues which is the kind of campaign we wanted to run. it just wasn't enough at the end of the day. we just had to accept that. >> bill: they ran the kind of campaign they wanted to run. no, they didn't. come on. that's the worst spin i ever heard. they wanted to run a campaign that ended up with them in the white house. they didn't. they ran a lousy campaign. even republicans now say they ran a lousy campaign. but paul ryan goes on to say well, you know, we certainly didn't expect what happened. >> the polling we had the numbers we were look at looked like we stood a pretty good chance of winning. so when the numbers came in, you know, going the other direction we saw the kind o
medicare. i don't know. let's see if they resurface paul ryan's voucher proposal. let's see if they resurface the bill that paul ryan proposed right after bush was re-elected. bush 43 was re-elected. when he went on a tour around privatizing social security and paul ryan was the first one to author that legislation. so let's see what they mean and i know democrats will never stand for breaking the guarantee. >> bill: that, in fact is what they mean by entitlement reform. senator dick durbin was over at the senator for american progress yesterday and he made it very, very clear that when the word entitlement reform is used or the phrase, there's one thing it should not include. here's senator durbin. >> i think we should take social security off the table for the current fiscal cliff and deficit discussion but be very honest about what we're going to achieve in the near term. i think we should create the equivalent of a simpson bowles commission for social security and give them eight months to a year, a directive
of the people that today's republican party -- didn't used to be that way that mitt romney, paul ryan, mitch mcconnell, they don't give a damn about. don't give a rat's ass about. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> bill: it is thursday, november 8, two days after president obama's decisive victory. our decisive victory. four more years for the obama agenda. great to see you today. take your calls at 1-866-55-press. and peter just before we get to -- back to the national picture, just reading during the break from the latest edition of california political week or cal-peak, this speaks to what we were talking about. how the republican party has lost its edge particularly among latinos, women young voters. in california, my state california republican party us
rubio, bobby jindal and now paul ryan. it is time to end the aims straw poll. history shows there is a little correlation between who wins the straw poll and who gets the nomination. last year the straw poll gave michele bachmann some credit. and president obama has a new pen pal, a 10-year-old. she first invited the president to dinner with no response. so then she sent him this letter. she wrote it to the position thanking him for his position on same-sex marriage, since sophia is being raised by her two dads. she called the president her hero, and he wrote back saying her letter made him hopeful for the future. arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. rich, chewy caramel rolled up in smooth milk chocolate. don't forg
